my awesome adventure

The path to success is littered with obstacles - plan on kicking stuff out of your way if you intend to succeed.

Welcome to my webspace; my place on the web where I introduce myself to the world and keep my friends and family up to date with whatever's happening in my little part of the planet.

For those who don't already know me; I'm a father, husband, sailer, DIYer and Pilot.    To date, I've flown 37 different types, all over the world.  I’ve been a Boeing 747-400 Captain, I've piloted the smallest Ultralight, and flown 35 other types in-between.

Currently, I'm a Boeing 767 Captain for a major cargo airline (corporate social media policies prevent me from disclosing which airline). I'm also an unwavering loyal friend to those who choose to show me the same loyalty, and even a few who don't!

I enjoy keeping active but don't have much patience for gyms and their membership bullshit. When possible I'll ride my bicycle opposed to driving, and I advocate public transportation. Don't read more into that than I've told you. I'm not a liberal and have owned a few Harleys and Muscle Cars (the real 60s and 70s types). I also enjoy biking & snow skiing, sailing & scuba diving, wood & metalwork, Guns & Archery, and mechanical tinkering & building stuff.

Of a more academic nature, I’ve had the privilege of contributing to a book about the iconic Boeing 747.  I also spent decades flying in Asia and am currently writing a book (a scary comedy) about the antics, corruption and comedy that occurs within those airlines.  

Whether flying ,or the many other things I've done when the airline business was in turmoil - Auto Mechanic, Welder, Furniture maker, Truck Driver, Writer for a Magazine, Navy Seaman, Drummer in an R & R Band, Ski Instructor, Bartender, Waiter, Cook, Restaurant Manager, and a  few others -  I've had a life full of great successes, as well as a few miserable failures. There have been moments of great pride, together with instances of horrific regret and embarrassment.   There's a lengthy list of people to whom I owe so much.  

What's next?  Who knows.  Each day's a new chapter in my adventure.  This site contains some of the stories.  Enjoy the read.
